Most people that come to this site are new and just getting into the online scene. It requires a lot of information to get the proper knowledge to know what it takes to have an online presence. For others you may already have a good grasp on different pieces of the puzzle, you just require the right sequence and vehicle to make it happen.

So first off just let me say that all the fancy vocabulary, large technical words and as some would like to say, being an expert by calling themselves a Guru is not what this website or mini-course is about.

You do not need a Ph.D. some form of a masters degree or any kind of education or certificates. To be successful on the Internet is a lot simpler than that and as you go through the lessons, they will point out the real truth. Think of it as a TV! You do not need to know how to engineer and create a TV, nor do you need to know how to fix it to the component level. All you need to know is how to operate the TV by its buttons on the console or remote. Just as you can work your television and show somebody else how to use it without using a complicated explanation, you can also learn how to run a successful online business.

Not everybody like onions but parfait….Have you seen Shrek?

Sorry. I think many people do the first thing you say. Quit and keep looking and never settle on anything just keep looking.

From your site I can see that it takes some effort to learn how to make money online and not enough people online will say that.

It’s good to know that you do not need any special skills to make it online and any body can do it.

A free website is a great perk to encourage people to take that first step. The courses that I clicked on will require some time to read and study in detail.

How long does it take to learn enough to make some money online? I guess it takes a long time if you always quit and look for something else.

Appreciate the info.


    April 24, 2016 at 1:07 pm

    Your right about the fact if you keep starting and quitting, you’ll probably never learn what it takes to have a successful online business.

    The biggest problem people come across is consistency to make a plan of action and work at it. Having a business online is not that different than having one offline. Far too many people think having a substantial income off the Internet is simple and requires no real work.

    Business is the same no matter where you go; it takes time, money, knowledge and everyone is different to what they know and how long things will take. Starting from scratch for an online income, most people are taking an average of 3-12 months and pushing up to 2-3 years for serious money.

    That may seem a long time to some, but yet they will spend a lifetime as an employee. I guess it comes down to what you want out of life. I use to be an employee and now I’ve spent the last twelve years running my own business. Everybody needs to decide for themselves which direction they want to go in.

Hi TSmithers,
You make it sound really easy to start-up a business online. I love the start-up of information that you provide! You make it very clear between free websites and paid websites. Seems like premium is the better option, so one can have all the tools they need to succeed. I also like the images on your site. Thanks for the information!


    April 24, 2016 at 7:29 pm

    Glad you liked the article, Valerie. Getting started is easy, but there will always be times that might seem more difficult than others. There is a lot involved with running any online business but anyone who wants to learn can.

    The premium option is the better way to go as you will already have a solid plan that works for making money on the Internet. You also gain the advantage of being able to get any of your questions answered, not to mention the available training for all aspects of the Internet.

    You’ll find a lot of the times questions you need answers to have already been asked and the answers are in the archives waiting for you whenever you want access to them. If some of the information is old you can ask the question again for what you need to know for today’s standards and you’ll get the answers.

    Getting all your questions answered and having a preset plan that is always being updated is the way to go I thing.

I’ve read up a lot on this recently – my mate’s done quite well out of it. I like the way internet marketers can collaborate with affiliate networks and pretty much take care of the execution stages, giving the merchant little to no bother during the procedure. I feel this would be something I’m quite good at – going to check out the training you have covered here (if it’s free!)


    April 26, 2016 at 8:39 pm

    For the free package, you will receive one of the courses which will give you ten lessons to get started, after that to continue further if you want total access with no restrictions then that’s where the premium package starts. The premium package allows you to take all the training provided to teach you what is needed to be successful with an online presence.

    Once you’ve completed all the main training there are weekly webinars and endless community training from many different members who share their knowledge to also help you out.

    During the first seven days of your free membership, you’ll have full access to ask away with the questions to the community so it is a perfect time to get any answers your looking for.

Take my advice, if you pick a niche that doesn`t seem to have a lot of traffic, don`t worry and be patient. There are about 2 billion surfing on the internet, believe me, there will be enough people searching for whatever it is your site is about. So don`t give up and have faith.


    May 10, 2016 at 11:20 am

    This is true that all sorts of products and services for every niche is being sold on the Internet these days. The problem is a lot of people have no patience and expect things to happen overnight. In most cases those people will never accomplish there goals with those aspectations while the other people ready to learn and work towards their goals usually will get the results they work towards.


May 20, 2016 at 11:12 am

Hi Travis,

I like this post, the steps you’ve outlined are ideal for any beginner to learn how to start up their online business and be able to easily put it in to practice!

I see you recommend Site Rubix as a free website building software platform, I’m a user of this myself and I think it s great, I’m not the least bit technical but even I can create half decent looking sites using their templates!

I recommend it to everyone!


    May 20, 2016 at 9:59 pm

    After I had spent many years of coding and programming for my older websites I found using a website builder extremely fast and simple. I have had many other people like yourself also tell me the same which is great.

    It just goes to show how much easier to have an online presence is these days and anyone interested can now get involved the easy way.

A lot of people are out there looking to make an income online or to set up a business of their own completely.

Unfortunately it is easy to get sidetracked as you search for information and it can often be confusing if you do not know what you are looking for.

Along with all the scams out there ready to trap people unawares it can be a daunting task trying to find a reputable source for training and to take things step by step as you progress.

This site you have made looks great and i hope people get to it before getting lost within the big online world with different and often conflicting information.




    May 31, 2016 at 10:50 pm

    Thanks for the comment there Chris and the good thing is there are others out there that have found how good Wealthy Affiliate really is and they are also recommending WA.

    Between them and this site that I have created, there will be a lot of people we’ll be able to help make the transition into the online world much easier. The more that get the opportunity to see my site or one of the other sites, the better chances people will have to stay away from the scammers we keep hearing about.


June 16, 2016 at 1:53 pm

You have put together what looks a comprehensive training course for beginners, taking them step by step through what it takes to build a business online.

Although the work involved is not hard, things need to be done the right way, and the right training is essential. If people follow your training and have the staying power to build a business, then they should do well, good work.



    June 17, 2016 at 12:12 am

    HI Rob and this mini-course are mainly for beginners even though I have had some of the more experienced marketers comment on some tips they learned some things about when some of them read through the pages.

    Many new people are getting involved with wanting to earn an income from the internet so this helps shed some light on the topic before taking the actual courses that will show you just how to create and build a real successful online business.

Hi Travis,

I rather enjoy how who explain the online business world through a metaphor of peeling layers of the onion back, to realise that there is so much more to learn. What I like is as I’m learning new things so are the connections in my network and so on and so forth.You have to crawl before you can walk on your own two feet. Best thing is that it’s absolutely free to begin an online business with SiteRubix to use as the website builder.

Yours Truly,


    July 7, 2016 at 10:29 am

    Yes, Carlton and that way you get to find out what is available without having to pay any money out first. Usually, people will have a lot of questions so you can use the first week with the full access to ask them and find out for yourself if having an online presence is what you want to get involved in for making money.

    There are so many people in the community that as you ask your questions multiple people will give you answers and also back up the answers so you’ll know which will be the best course of action for you.


August 1, 2016 at 8:43 pm

I think most people quit and keep looking because they had many bad experiences before, like scam, or they started something but quit just because they didn’t have enough knowledge. I’ve been in these situations as well.

I think you give great tips all listed to keep us on track. But the only thing you need to do to start to see any results is just dedicate yourself to this and work.


    August 2, 2016 at 11:34 am

    When you’re dealing with any legit opportunity like Wealthy Affiliate you do need to work your business to make it happen. Wealthy Affiliate has a step by step procedure to get you started and how to keep operating your business. Anyone who follows the lessons and all the training will make it through to develop an online business. The time it will take and how easy or hard you will find it depends on each person but anyone, can use this opportunity and see about making it work for them.


August 12, 2016 at 8:50 am

This is a great post one of the most informative ones I’ve seen. I have been trying to make money online for a while now. But I haven’t been successful. I will follow your site and bookmark it so I can visit it each day.

I also like how you have a ten step program. I’m very excited to see what you have in store in those.

Thank you and I hope you continue to make awesome helpful post like this one.


    August 12, 2016 at 10:05 am

    The ten-page mini-course will help with answering a lot of questions that many people have been asking and give some direction to building a successful site.

    When you take this course and add in all the extra help from the Best Resource For Website into the equation, it can make a big difference in helping just about anybody out. There are links that anyone can use, and they will help with getting your site to be the success you want.


September 16, 2016 at 11:03 am

You have a good laid out plan here for starting an online business by the looks of it.

I think that most people just jump in and don’t understand some of the steps needed to get started and maintain their online business. That is why you see so many come and go.

Your outline here should help those getting started.


    September 18, 2016 at 12:58 am

    Having a plan before you begin will make a huge difference but at least if you put a plan together as soon as possible after the fact you can still straighten everything out.

    Without a plan you’ll take longer to rank and generate the required traffic you’ll need for conversions. The more traffic the more you can help so having a good layout will help get you there sooner.


January 14, 2017 at 4:21 pm

Great post, I should have this when I just got started. I Iove the way you have emphasized that any skill levels with basic literacy can do this, and then further emphasize that the reader should read to ensure that this is what he or she wants to do. For I agree that any body can do this but only a percentage of people may incline to.


    January 14, 2017 at 8:54 pm

    I like to think of it the same as most jobs. If there is a job you would like to do, then you can see about learning how and make it happen. Depending on the person will depend on what you would want to do for earning money. Some people would like to have a restaurant while others would rather do sports. Everybody is different and some things we are just not meant to do at all.

    The great thing about having an online business is more people can have the opportunity if they want one. Unlike most brick and mortar businesses, you do not require the capital and can achieve having an online business on a much smaller budget and certainly do it part time.


April 8, 2017 at 11:18 pm

From your site I can tell you know that starting a business online is like any other business, it takes WORK. But like you say if someone is willing to learn there is a lot of money to be made. It looks like you have a good course that is very in depth. I think an important thing for many people is to make some money fast, so they can see that online income really does exist. It can also motivate them to keep going.


    April 9, 2017 at 1:39 am

    Being able to make fast money is always nice but is usually not the case for most people.

    For most people that get the mindset that starting an online business means fast money, they will find themselves giving up before they discover any return and usually give up or lose money to scammers preying on those with the get rich easily mentality.

    When you approach an online business like any other, ready to put in the time and work to make things happen, then you have the right mindset to build a business online. How fast you earn an income depends on what you know or are willing to learn, accomplishing your success online.

    It takes time, work and a budget. The budget can be small or large depending on what you have to work with and how fast you expect a return on your efforts.

    Anyone can make money online, but not everyone will make fast money. You need a plan that works, and you need to work that plan, and the money will come in time.
